"Bullying, hate crimes, killing and genocide have as their foundation
contempt for another human being.  Once I put you outside my circle of
moral concern, then I can do anything to you."  (Barabara Coloroso, 
Author of Extraordinary Evil: A Brief History of Genocide)

"If you push a group out of existence, you define it, you target, you
effect a policy that causes the group not to exist, even if all the
individual members survive - it's genocide.  You don't have to kill a 
soul." (Ward Churchill, Author of A Little Matter of Genocide)

Within this special documentary, CKUT Radio explores a critical issue of
our times: A little matter of genocide.  You've seen the coverage of
Darfur, calling for you and everyone's army to intervene in the conflict
now. But what of the similarities between Darfur and conflict in Iraq?
Can we even compare these two conflicts? Does the way in which the
mainstream media covers a particular conflict impact the way in which it
is perceived?

The voices of academics, authors, and survivors have been collected to
reflect on these questions (and more) within the following three chapters:

Episode 1 - Genocide: What's in a Name?
Part One:
Part Two:

Episode 2 - Untold Stories: The North American Holocaust & Genocide in
Part One:
Part Two:

Episode 3 - Talks on Genocide: The Will to Act
Part One:
Part Two:
